Some years it was cheaper for me to pay the taxes on the kid's returns then to claim the funds on mine. If my refund is reduced, for example, by $1000 if I claim thier income, and if I don't claim thier income and pay thier tax of say $500, I essentially save $500. (random numbers, just a point being made.)
